The Cubs look to avoid being swept by their cross-town rivals on national television.
Chicago White Sox at Chicago Cubs
The Chicago White Sox have won four straight games and five of their last six as they continue a nine-game, 10-day road trip. It’s only helped to have starting pitchers Jake Peavy, Gavin Floyd and Mark Buehrle scheduled to throw in this series, as the three have combined to go 34-15 with a 3.25 ERA in interleague play. “We’re getting the good pitching and timely hitting,” White Sox outfielder Juan Pierre said following Saturday’s 2-1 victory. The lineup is filled with hitters that have been Cubs’ killers in the past, including OF Mark Kotsay batting .405 in his last 10 games against the club and OF Alex Rios being a red-hot 11-for-16 with six RBI in his last four. The team continues its winning ways against the National League, currently having a 4-1 record this year (+340), after going 12-6 in 2009.
The Cardinals may have been sluggish in Game 1 after playing on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball the night before, but expect a better performance with one of their aces taking the hill tonight.

A tremendous pitching matchup is set for Sunday’s contest, with both teams looking to capture the series.
New York Yankees at New York Mets
The New York Yankees look to capture the series on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, with the team coming in with a 10-3-1 series record during the season. The Yankees have compiled a 7-7 series finale mark in 14 opportunities in 2010. Offensively, New York left 13 runners on base in its fourth loss in five games and the first three hitters in the lineup were 0-for-13 on Saturday. Facing a left-handed pitcher will cause little concern for the Bronx Bombers, producing a 9-6 record against them this year (+110) and have gone a dominating 74-48 over the last three years (+480). Betting the Yankees in May has been a losing proposition, with the team just a game over .500 (-320).
